      Roadtrip Attraction
      Theodore Seuss Geisl, better known by his pen name of Dr. Seuss, was born in Springfield in 1904. This sculpture garden honors his legacy as one of the world's most beloved children's authors with faithful representations of characters from some of his books, as well as the author himself. The memorial, designed by Geisl's stepdaughter, a sculptor, is located in the courtyard of the Springfield Museums, a complex featuring George Walter Vincent Smith Art Museum, the Springfield Science Museum, the Connecticut Valley Historical Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts.
